Section 17 Market : Closed After COVID-19 Cases!

On 3 August 2021, the Section 17 market closed for 4 days after several traders there tested positive for COVID-19.

According to China Press, five COVID-19 cases were detected in the market.

While there is no official announcement, the Section 17 Morning market Hawkers Association said that the market will be closed for disinfection, and reopen on Saturday, 7 August 2021.

 

Section 17 COVID-19 Cases : What Is The Risk?

Anyone who shopped at the Section 17 morning market on or before 2 August 2021, should be wary and self-quarantine if possible.

The risk will be low if both the affected traders and all customers wore face masks, and maintained physical distance.

The Ministry of Health will be conducting contact tracing for all positive cases, and those identified as close contacts will be asked to self-quarantine and get tested.

Let this be a reminder why it is critical that you wear a face mask in public at all times – they greatly reduce the risk of infection.

You should also maintain good hand hygiene by cleaning with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser.

COVID-19 is easily destroyed by soap, so even a simple cleaning operation will definitely clean the market of any infectious particles, albeit only temporarily.
